Your data, privacy & the law

Privacy Notice

Within the NHS, your local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for planning, designing, buying and paying for certain NHS services. These services include planned and emergency hospital care, mental health, rehabilitation, and community services.

About fair processing

The Data Protection Act requires organisations, including those in the NHS, to process personal data fairly and lawfully.

The methods by which these processes are governed and explained to patients are known as ‘fair processing’.

How personal confidential data are used

The main use of data is for the provision of direct care and care services. In these cases, data are collected from patients and shared between doctors and other regulated professionals to enable the provision of care. Relevant data are stored and processed in computer systems within care providers, such as general practices and provider trusts, (e.g., hospitals and community services), and with any organisations that have been contracted to process data on their behalf.

Fair processing requires that such sharing is made clear to the patient in the process of the provision of care and is understood by the patient.
